The article mentions FreedomWorks a couple of times. FreedomWorks is basically funded by the Koch Brothers, if you didn't know.
Is FreedomWorks an owner? I thought FreedomWorks was a PAC?
Robert J. Stephenson, who's just like the Kochs, is the the founder and owner.
I guess dey not comp-ass-in-it as I thought.
People have to accept they are gonna die.
You 'mos all have AIDS so you live with it all the time.
But normal people don't do this. They have responsibilities like spouses and kids. All you 'mos have to worry about is how much cum you can have some diseased infested weirdo shoot up your ass.
Too many of these people see death as a cash register.
It's sad how trolls like R9 reveal not only their low intelligence, but what must be stupidity caused by lack of higher education. Go away little boy. The grown ups are trying to have a discussion.
Cancer Treatment Centers are a CROCK of shit and I detest them. Of course, I am happy for the people they have helped.
Basically, if you have cancer, they will only accept you if it's a cancer they are easily able to treat because they want to preserve their bs '99% success rate,' or whatever it is. So yes, they do help people, but only a TINY number of people that come to them seeking treatment, based on their bs commercials.
Thanks R11, I've always wondered about them, i see their ads all the time on TV.
Oh yeah r12. That's why we all know who Peggy is, she seemed to be one of their only success stories until they were able to find maybe 6 more in the 6 years I have been seeing their commercials. It's like ambulance chasing attorney commercials who promise that you don't have to pay if you don't win. They can make that guarantee because they won't take your case unless they are 98% positive you have one.
So, OP was wrong?
Who is this 'mo troll who shows up in the wee hours of the morning?
Why is it that r9 is a troll, but r8 and the whole devoted to r8 type bullshit, is not trolling?
A woman I know in Northeastern Pennsylvania took her husband to CCA in Phildelphia. By the time he got to local MD for diagnosis he was too far along for CCA to treat him. They are selective on cases they take. Died at home with hospice.
R11, did you even read what you wrote? Why would they accept someone with cancer they couldn't treat?
R17, that's better than a coworker of mine, who was poisoned by chemo, had a botched surgery where the hospital kept everyone in the dark afterwards and who died after a doctor at another hospital sent her to hospice when he opened her up for a routine procedure related to her recovery and realized something was very wrong.
I think this article should become a series where they look wider like some network did with NPR on coroners and death certificates in various states. There is a lot of this fighting for insurance, subjecting week and helpless patients to chemo their bodies cannot stand and other reprehensible practices. Cancer is big bucks for hospitals, cynical doctors and big pharma.
If diagnosed and CTCA saves your life, it wouldn't matter to you or your family who owns place. They help people. End of story.
I agree the CTC are nearly a fraud and their ads are misleading in the extreme- but the so is the heading of this thread. While the owner of CTC may be a member of the Freedom Works PAC, there is nothing in the article to state that the Koch bros own and operate CTC or that Freedom Works does. I too loath the efforts on the right of the Koch bros- but I also think posters should read the articles that they post.
They are a private, for-profit business. Know this upfront and don't be shocked when they don't accept everyone. We live in a free market capitalistic society.
I'm sure they do a lot of good for people and they also shun others. Isn't that what all for-profit enterprizes do????

Reading is fundmental dear. R11 said EASILY TREAT. There are some cancers that can be treated successfully, but not easily. An early stage cervical cancer can be treated quickly and successfully.
